Fire? What Fire?

So, today during sacarament at church the fire alarm went off. The bishop (the spiritual leader of our congregation) gets up and says, "there is no fire, we will continue with the meeting as planned." While the fire alarms are blaring (and they are LOUD), this poor guy stands at the pulpit and bears his testimony. Obviously, nobody can hear him and our ears are all hurting. After this the bishop stands up and says, "rather then having our speakers talk over the alarm, we will have some quiet time until they are reset." He has the organist start playing the organ and we are supposed to sit quietly while our ears burst. I decide to get Audra (and myself) out of there- we went out to the hall and eventually outside where several others had also gone. It took about 10 minutes before the alarms finally stopped, and I am still hearing ringing in my ears- definitely a first for me in sacrament!


  1. oh wow. i can't believe that he would have you guys continue. that's just crazy to me. oh well, to each his own. glad you got out of there though.

  2. I can't stop laughing. Seriously! I wonder how my kids would have taken that. Good thing you got Audra out of there! Looking forward to next Thursday. Okay, really I am looking forward to next Monday when school starts but we really are looking forward to the new class! :)
